Well I live on a property that has 5 horses on it. I am basically there most of the time apart from when I am at work, the other owners live off the property. One of the owners is really nice so don't take this rant the wrong way she means well but shouldn't own the horses her knowledge of owning a colt & pregnant mare is too minimal.
We only have one mare on the property & there is hot fences between her & the colt. But yet he has starting getting out we don't have proper fences to have a 3 yr old colt running here. I just live there don't run it not my choice. So this morning he is over the fence from our horses & the mare!!!! ARGH so shifting mission colt gets under way by the way I am tempted to lock him in one of the pens.
So this is already unsafe really unhappy plus the colt & a STB gelding(all the same owners horses) came on to the property really skinny & run down. So of course the colt was too weak to cause any problems now he is getting his pep back this could start getting hairy. Hopefully they will be moving in a week or so.
But wait there is more, when they leave a mare that is due to foal in Nov is coming onto the property also owned by this woman. I haven't seen her but she is meant to be in good condition, but a bit of a grumpy tart. Guess who has been roped into foaling her! ME
This woman texts me the other day asking how long a mare is in foal for goodness sakes!! I am starting to get a bit worried about being in this situation she doesn't have much clue I was talking to her about waxing up etc, blank stares. She reckons she's worked on a stud & foaled mares before.
This is all the experience I have had plus two of my ponies were breed when I was 16 so I have foaled quite a few mares after two foaling seasons at a stud as well.
But concerned that the owner is so clueless & she also wants to keep the colt as a stallion & breed from him. ARGH he is sooo ugly & has bad confirmation.
Ok sorry the end of my rant sorry if this makes no sense & it's so long but I had to get it all out. Haven't even proof read
